Photography is a part time occupation for Louise with her full-time work as an Indigenous advisor for a national construction company. In this role she has been privileged to see many beautiful parts of Australia and be welcomed into beautiful communities. Travel and cultures of the world have always captivated Louise, instilled in her in particular by her father who makes his living as a travel writer. Besides enjoying the outdoors in one form or another, she really enjoys good food and wine with loved ones.
Louise is currently working on a secondment with an Aboriginal organisation in Kununurra, Western Australia for three months. Whilst the purpose is skills sharing and working on a specific project brief for this organisation, she generally expects that she will benefit the most from the experience.
As a World Nomads sponsored photographer, we have sent her Sanchez the Camera to help her give back to the community which has helped her feel so welcome.
She is thankful to have been given a unique opportunity to meet people she would never have met, to develop her own skills and to see some fantastic country, including her favourite tree, the boab – namesake of her photography business logo.
Louise’s favourite family photo was taken during their engagement shoot. It reconnects her with the amazing feelings of that day. The photographers were friends and made it immensely fun despite her nerves at being on the “wrong” side of the camera. It reminds her of a day of great conversation and fun with some of her favourite people.
